FB hilarity

My in laws are the crazy kind of republicans who believe pretty much the exact opposite of everything that I believe.  My sister in law has this as her FB status right now:

"WHAT A CROCK OF Bull..... We can't say Merry Christmas now we have to say Happy Holidays. We can't call it a Christmas tree, it's now called a Holiday tree? Because it might offend someone. If you don't ike OUR "Customs" and it offends you so much then GO HOME. I will help you pack. You aren't worried about offending ME, are you? They are called customs and we have our traditions. If you agree with this please post this as your status! I AM A PROUD AMERCIAN CITIZEN... MERRY CHRISTMAS. Do you have what it takes to repost this? God IS Christmas and a part of my daily life. "In God We Trust." Amen"

 

It is taking every ounce of willpower that I have to not post the comment "Um, YOU'RE JEWISH!!"

  • I got an email forward from my MIL the other night about "boycott the new forever stamp! It celebrates a Muslim holiday! Tell them you only want American stamps! More stupid ignorant words!"  It was a freaking stamp from zazzle.com.

  • I would reply with all sweetness and light, "Aw, SIL, I think some people just want to use Happy Holidays so that people of all religions, including Jewish people like you, can feel included in the festivities!"

  • Should I put a sign that sas "G-d is Christmas" in front of my menorah this year?  OY!  Please comment on her status wishing her a Happy Hanukkah!
  • Gosh, and all this time I thought "customs" were based in more than just national origin. It's a good thing she's around to let me know I'm wrong. Merry Christmas everyone (even if you don't celebrate it based on your religious customs)!

  • If it was someone in my own family, I definitely would, but I just can't bring myself to start sh!t with my inlaws.  Those family vacations are stressful enough as it is.

     

    It's so tempting though.

  • I like Fenton's approach..."bless her heart" without saying it.
